List the outcomes you can see in these experiments.
(a) Spinning a wheel
(b) Tossing two coins together
All the possibilities of an event are known as its outcomes.
(a) There are four letters A, B, C, and D in a spinning wheel. So, there are 4 outcomes.
(b) When two coins are tossed together, there are four possible outcomes HH, HT, TH, TT. (where, Head - H and Tail - T). Hence, there are 4 outcomes.
